Older wiring-New fan

I want to replace my existing ceiling fixture in the bedroom with a ceiling fan with light fixture. When I pulled the existing fixture down I discovered ony two wires coming in (1) black and (1) white - no ground. It is the same at the wall switch.

Can I safely add my ceiling fan w/light without hooking up the ground?

Thanks for any help

Yes you can. It is not likely anyone will touch the fan in the unlikely event it did have a fault.
